Once the frame is constructed, a spring system is installed to support the seating area. When the spring system is finished with a top layer of padding, it is commonly called the “seat deck”. Once a piece of upholstered furniture has its frame and springs, the next components are the cushions and padding.
The term ‘Textiles’ encompasses fabrics and leathers. Textiles can account for up to 80 per cent of furniture price. Tightly woven fabrics and blends tend to wear longer than light or loose-weave natural fibers.

We use only the finest materials and most trusted methods in the construction of our hand-made furniture reupholstery and upholstery.
Each reupholstery project is dealt with on an individual basis by our fully trained craftsmen, giving the personal touch for which we are well known and respected.
Our craftsmanship is of the highest quality; all of our frames are made from selected hardwoods and each is individually dowelled, glued and screwed. The fine quality fabrics we use are all hand cut and sewn.
We offer a wide range of the finest quality fabrics. Because we believe in British craft and manufacture as well as local sustainability, over 90 per cent of the cloth we use is produced in English mills.
All fillings and fabrics are fire retardant and meet the latest British Goverment safety regulations.
